ASUS Eee PC Seashell

Looks like ASUS is ramping up their Eee PC offerings, with the latest one arriving in the form of Eee PC Seashell 1008HA. The 1008HA sports a opalescent glossy and durable exterior, 10-inch display and weighs 1.1kg. If you don’t like the typical white model, the Eee PC Seashell also comes in black, blue, pink, sapphire blue and ruby red.

Taipei, Taiwan, April 30, 2009 – ASUS has taken one of nature’s most beautiful designs and combined it with the best of today’s innovations to provide users with the most stylishly functional Eee PC™ yet. Equipped with a 10-inch display, ergonomically designed keyboard, intelligent energy management system and an intuitive multi-touch touch-pad, the Eee PC™ Seashell aims to provide users with the best mobile computing experience, wherever their journeys take them.

Elegantly Beautiful Seashell-inspired Design
With a design inspired by a seashell, the Eee PC™ Seashell is enveloped in an opalescent glossy exterior that also serves as a protective shell providing scratch resistance for day-to-day durability. Like the light sprinkling of fine sand on the exterior of a seashell, the lid is graced with tiny reflective specks which glisten in the light, adding the crowning touches to an already exquisite design. Likened to prying open an oyster to reveal its treasure within, the subtly curved lid reveals a 10-inch LED-backlit WSVGA glare-type display and an ergonomically designed keyboard makes typing on-the-move a breeze.

Designed for Mobility and Long Computing Hours
Boasting a profile measuring just 1-inch in depth and weighing 1.1kg, the svelte and lightweight Eee PC™ Seashell’s compact dimensions make it the perfect runabout Internet device anywhere. It also packs 6-hour of battery life with a single charge, making it a truly perfect all-day entertainment companion.
